keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of new jersey, things are getting worse. they're not getting better. the president's got to keep part of his concentration on this. and he hasn't been doing that. there is no substitute for the president not concentrating on. >> should he now come to new york, the president? >> president hasn't been to new york. president hasn't been to breezy point. president hasn't been to staten island. people in staten island feel abandoned. he hasn't been there. >> he's obviously been to new jersey with the governor. do you think he should now come directly to -- >> he has been to new jersey but he hasn't been to staten island. he hasn't been to breezy point. hasn't been to rockaway. these people lost 80 homes, they lost lives and we're still finding bodies there. i think the president has to devote some of his time to concentrating

is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks
jersey governor chris christie. he's not messing around with his message. his state is right in the path of this storm. newark's liberty airport is basically shut down. hundreds of flights have been canceled because of this storm. our rob marciano is keeping an eye on things in asbury park, new jersey. rob, last year just before hurricane irene, chris christie told people in no uncertain terms and i will quote him here, get the hell outfit beach. my question to you, are people heeding his message to get out and get to safer ground? >> reporter: you know, they are. and you may remember, he caught some criticism for using those strong words last year after what people along the immediate jersey shore felt was an overreaction. certainly after irene's disaster, turned out to be a wise choice, especially for those living along the immediately shoreline. here in asbury park and up and down the northern coastline of new jersey, they have certainly heeded his warning. here's a look at the surf that continues to pour in. the tide is actually receding now. but i've only seen it go down maybe five,
of these areas on the shore anyway at this point. >> very quickly, chris christie has been pretty scathing about the mayor of atlantic city, saying that he basically went against his instructions. what can you tell me about that and how much of a problem will that be for the mayor, if indeed people do get trapped and potentially lose their lives? >> reporter: well, we were talking to the mayor of atlantic city on air earlier, and i had asked him, i said look, 3:00, 4:00 in the afternoon, what do you do if you haven't left, because the roads have started to become overtopped and he said at that point, if you're not out, stay where you are, get to high ground. chris christie then took exception to some of his comments and i'm not sure the situation on the ground makes the mayor wrong. i agree there should have been a great emphasis on getting people out of town. most did. about 400 or 500 remain in shelters in atlantic city but the mayor's concern is that some people didn't go to shelters, they are just at home and there's no services to help them. unclear as to at what point the mayor should have
chris christie says officials requested emergency supplies of gasoline and fuel from the federal government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming in from all over. exactly from 12 states. they are headed to new jersey to assist in repairs. the national guard is increasing its response to the storm. reinforcements were sent to new york and new jersey to double the recovery efforts. now, while people are picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, the presidential campaign is back in full swing. if you want to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument?
? after his photohelpop with chris christie, he boards fair force 1 and begins with a stump speech -- where? in green bay, wisconsin and then to las vegas. his final event is just getting underway in boulder, colreado. heel stay the night in ohio. with the horrifying images of sandy's devastation, contrasted with the president's constant pamdam paining, this is starting to look like, in my opinion, obama's katrina. we will have reaction from former new york city mayor rudy guiliani. but i want to update you on the other story that continues to change by the minute. fox news can confirm, on the night of the benghazi terror attack, the obama administration did not convene its top counter-terrorism resource, that being the counter-terrorism security group, which has the ability to coordinate all asset, all agencies to respond to a potential terror attack. forks news has confirmed that emails exist showing the key responders were ready to deploy but were upon called upon by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what r
a point of argument. the president goes in for a photo-op with chris christie and he's back on the campaign trail. he have gas stations shut down. we have looters breaking out. we have people dumpster diving. we have chaoses breaking out with the obama katrina emerging before our eyes -- he got his photo-op, he's on the campaign trail. joe and david, things are going to get worse by the weekend. i am on the ground here in new york and new jersey. it is getting really bad, really fast. david? >> well, the momentum was in mitt's favor before the hurricane hit. there was a chance it would cause a moratorium. i don't think it has. but even if it has, it will dissipate by the weekend. i hope it doesn't have any political effect at all. mitt will recapture the momentum. he was 4 points ahead in rasmussen's national poll, 6 in gallup likely polling. i think all the -- all the policy reasons to oust obama are present. he doesn't have an energized base. everybody says, the key to this is voter turnout, the republicans are energized like they have never been in my lifetime. therefore,
sandy. homes and businesses along the east coast, they're boarding up. just yesterday, governor chris christie declared a state of emergency. he also issued a mandatory evacuation for the state's barrier islands and for atlantic city casinos. >> good morning i formally declared a state of emergency in anticipation of hurricane sandy which is expected to be a severe and a potentially devastateding storm that will hit new jersey beginning sunday night. and be in full force by monday. >> that's new jersey. let's take you to our nation's capital. store shelves in d.c. quickly clearing as people who are heading to the stores are stocking up, preparing for the worst in the hurricane. the mayor, vincent gray, declared a state of emergency just yesterday. and city workers have already prepared, prepping for cleanup post storm. city leaders say they will maintain contact with people live there through social media, twitter, facebook, et cetera there's also been a state of emergency declared in maryland, annapolis. they are moving sand and sandbags in places to protects people, buildings, busin
. the governor, chris christie, will hold a news conference in 30 minutes. we'll bring it to you live. the powerful winds, the torrential rain, the storm surges, they are wreaking havoc from north carolina all the way to maine, the area of tropical storm force winds extends almost, get this, 1,000 miles. many coastal towns have been evacuated, major cities are completely shut down. new york city alone could face catastrophic flooding. more than 765,000 customers already are without power in seven states. tens of millions could face blackouts lasting for days. our reporters are standing by throughout the disaster area to bring you the story the way only cnn can. let's go to atlantic city, new jersey, right now, which is bearing so much of the brunt of the storm at this hour. parts of the city already under water, barely visible, forcing authorities to evacuate hundreds of people from areas where flooding is said to be dangerously high. casinos are cleared out and less than an hour from now, the entire city will be under curfew, a man toir curfew, bracing for the worst. let's go straigh
on campaign trail tomorrow. his big event is with governor chris christie in new jersey. governor christie had high praise for the president last couple days for the response to the storm. that will be an interesting image to watch. yesterday at the red cross president obama said he would make every effort to cut through the sort of red tape that the romney campaign says he tried to our aboutry america in. here's the president. >> we have a situation where that lasts for days on end and so my instructions to the federal agency has been, do not figure out why we can't do something. i want you to figure out how we do something. i want you to cut through red tape. i want you to cut through bureaucracy. there is no excuse for inaction at this point. >> reporter: as the campaign sets to resume full tomorrow, jim messina, president obama's campaign manager, has a video out today talking about the state of the race. talking about the advantage president obama has in all of those battleground states. the romney campaign scrambling to get facts and figures to counter that. it should be said and could b
or two and the way in which chris christie has been very positive about him. that has an impact. the election will go out on tuesday will go out in the wash and be back where we were before the hurricane. i thought before the hurricane we were moving towards a 53-47 or better romney victim and republican controlled senate. when you see these waves start to build. they said romney was winning the early vote by about six points that enormous shock. obama has claimed all along they would win the early vote. so obama will be in big trouble despite being a day or two presidential giving out a lot of money and going around being concerned. >> sean: i just hope people compare and contrast, this is not the same president in benghazi. we don't 6 a picture of the situation when the president was flying off to vegas. i'm not saying this is photo op or the president doesn't care. i'm sure he does. you are are right. photo-ops giving away money does not erase four years of a bad economy. it does not erase of the lies told in relationship to what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is the water
. we don't have the supply coming in. governor chris christie gave authorization for the gas stations to buy that supply from out of state. it's not usually done to alleviate the problem. it's going to take time. we were running out of gas as well. we were going to shoot gas stations with a long line, by the time we found one, we were out of gas as well. tempers were flaring. take a look and listen to how people were dealing with it. >> i have to make three trips to this gas station. >> a little tank, you have to fill it up three times. just to get home. it still might not make it. >> any other gas stations with gas? >> no other gas stations with gas. >> i'm broke down. i'm stranded. i can't get home. no gas. >> reporter: this affects everybody from delivery cabs to people delivering food to people wanting to get home. i don't think the problem is going to be alleviated anymore soon. you mentioned mta, there are a few trains back online. commuter railroads as well. southern manhattan, it's still dark around me. the best way of action, either because it's forced upon you or because you
be that recovery. >> the controversy of governor chris christie. some said he should redeclare his support for governor romney prior to tuesday. do you think that is important? would you like to see that? >> no, i know who chris supports. he supports mitt romney. i understand what happens when the president came there. the reality is the president did in the first couple of days of hurricane sandy the president did keep his eye on the ball and did h help, new jersey, and new york and elsewhere. last couple of days, awol on that as well while people are suffering. bodies being discovered. gas lines where people are shooting my goodness and the president of the united states runs off to nevada once again being the campaigner in chief rather than the commander in chief. which s what happened in benghazi. the president's focus is on the cam tape and not on protecting american lives and not getting to the answers of what happened to those people who were slaughtered in benghazi. he s campaigning rather than acting as commander are in chief. >> greta: you bring up benghazi again. i note that gov
